Smile Hello!

Hello from Singapore! The name's Ryan and I'm 20 this year. Kept a few bettas when I was in little kid, but was never really serious about them until - they were always kept in a cramped vase with a flower or two, which is rather cruel now that I think about it.

Took up the hobby again a month back and started out with a 15G tank, but wasn't successful in keeping freshwater fishes, and decided to just have a single hardy betta in a 2G for now, until I'm more experienced with rearing fish.

Here's some photos of my new buddy! I've a thread in the pictures section too (hope I'm not breaking any rules double-posting images!)

Welcome to the forums ryan! Your betta is gorgeous with all those purples! He looks like a pretty flower.

Hello and welcome to the forum

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
